- IS ET CAPTURING OUR MARS SPACECRAFT?
- One of the few scientists who ever studied UFOs, was
Germany's world-famous father of rocketry, Professor Hermann Oberth. After
three years of studying the information supplied by his own and other governments,
the outspoken Oberth said at a news conference in 1954: "There is
no doubt in my mind that these objects (UFO's) are interplanetary craft
of some sort. I am confident that they do not originate in our solar system,
but they may use Mars or some other body for a way station." MUFON's
Antonio Huneeus interviewed him later and Oberth said he stood by his statements.
His comments have new meaning based on the Mars Polar Lander failure and
the September failure of the Mars Climate Orbiter. It is a total loss for
the entire, $330 million Mars '98 project, which consisted of Polar Lander,
the Deep Space 2 microprobes and the Climate Orbiter.
- Doesn't it seem strange that two out of every three of
Earth's space probes going to Mars fail? You might remember we lost the
billion dollar Mars Observer spacecraft in 1993, just as it was about to
go into orbit. That gave NASA a wakeup call particularly since the Russian
probes at met a similar fate. I suggest that Dan Goldin and NASA review
the March 28, 1989, images showing a huge cylinder shaped craft intercepting
the Soviet Phobos 2 spacecraft. The UFO interceptor is very similar to
the ones reported by hundreds of witnesses here on Earth. We have multiple
witness reports including pilot reports, videotapes and photos of these
objects. ET may be waiting near Mars to capture or knock out our probes,
but they are also here on Earth.
- NASA realized it's kind of tough to reveal to the American
public that we're losing billion dollar spacecraft to ET, even if they
do pay for allot of scientists. So they did the next best thing. They
cheapened the cost of spacecraft so American taxpayers only lost $157 million
dollars for the Mars Polar Lander. Let's face it, NASA is in a tough spot.
Congress may get upset with failed space probes and cut NASA's budget
even further. It's tough to blame the failed probes on ET, so they have
to admit they made some sort of a mistake.
- NASA continues to search for life on Mars. However,
the fact that only a few of our space probes succeed provides evidence
that something is out there. These Filer's Files cost nothing and operate
on a shoe string, but we're apparently getting closer to proving intelligent
life exits in the universe than NASA. Of course, we have the services
of a lot of dedicated MUFON, ISUR, National Reporting Center, Skywatch
and other volunteer investigators. Ufolgists are getting better evidence
each day. Imagine the kind of videos we could get with a few million dollars.
The Filer Research Institute would be happy to consult with NASA and give
them some techniques for getting past the ET defenders.
- NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin said, "It is conceivable
that we will completely change our approach. "If I was Dan Goldin,
I would want to get out the old Phobos 2 images and learn by the Soviet
mistakes and a few of ours. According to Colonel Maria Popovich the Phobos
infrared cameras picked up a great deal of heat in certain key areas indicating
possible underground facilities on Mars. When the Soviet probe was ready
to go into orbit of the Martian moon Phobos, an unidentified flying object
came up to meet their craft. The ET welcoming team apparently captured
the Soviet probe. If you assume ET actually exists your whole approach
to visiting Mars changes. Other Mar's missions are now in preparation
and much could be done to get them through the ET defenses.
- Dan Goldin admits privately something is out there.
I suggest it might be time to start looking for evidence ET is visiting
Earth and Mars on a regular basis. NASA might even want to start examining
those so-called ice crystals they keep spotting near the Space Shuttle.
Those ice crystals are making 90 degree turns, fly over thunderstorms
and suddenly stop. These objects defy the laws of physics if they are
not intelligently controlled. It seems odd that our astronauts operating
the space shuttle cameras spend time zooming in on these disc shaped ice
crystals? I suggest NASA look closely at some of their own videos. They
might be surprised at the evidence they have in their own files.
- The Filer Research Institute will even work on a contingency
basis. NASA only has to pay expenses unless our craft get through to Mars.
We'll even check to see if your calculations are correct. As a former
USAF Intelligence Officer, I'm prepared to brief NASA or anyone else on
the ET intelligence situation. Its time to weigh the evidence. We either
have incompetent scientists at JPL and NASA or something else is out there
causing these failures.
- NOAA SATELLITE PICKS UP GIANT UFO IN EARTH ORBIT
- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
has several Geosynchronous Orbiting Environmental Satellites (GOES) in
orbit watching the Earth's weather and environment. On November 21, 1999,
at 14:45Z hours our satellites caught an amazing photo of a UFO at an estimated
hundred miles above the Earth off the coast of the state of Washington.
Russel Kirchner phoned to inform me that he had obtained the satellite
photos and was sending them for all to see. The University of Colorado
also keeps these photos on file for reference. One of the satellites is
designed to pick up water vapor or clouds from space.
- When Russel caught sight of the UFO in the display he
zoomed in and could see the steam coming off a UFO. It was the type we
identify as a large Mother Ship. We discussed the possibility of the object
image being caused by a computer error. Similar photos taken on June 8,
1995, over South America have also been widely distributed. Philip Imbrogno
studied this case and NOAA explained the image was a "moon shadow
UFO." This excuse will not hold in the latest photos. This UFO was
present for only a few minutes and is not seen in images taken prior or
afterwards. The UFO has structure, windows, and radiates heat in the infrared
spectrum. Thanks to Russel Kirchner. www.goes.noaa.gov/ See photo at www/filersfiles.com.
- V-SHAPED UFO SEEN BY A FAMILY IN WEST VIRGINIA
- LEWISBURG - November 14, 1999, Michele W. and her children
were driving on Interstate Highway I-64, and, just before reaching Lewisburg,
she spotted an unusual object in the sky. "While traveling on I-64
eastbound, I saw a quickly moving V-shaped craft fly soundlessly over the
road and disappear over the mountain," Michele reported, "I saw
it approaching from the right side of the south." And by the time
I yelled to the kids, 'Do you see what I see?' it had disappeared over
the mountains." "The lights were red and steady, not blinking,"
she added, "It seemed like it was flying low, but it was completely
soundless. Did anyone else see this?" (Email Interview) Thanks to

- GEORGIA UFO
- WATKINSVILLE - On November 27, 1999, a UFO constantly
changed shape and size and darted to higher altitudes for more than three
hours starting around 9:00 PM. Ten friends and family members were camping
out and hunting when one of the family members observed three small lights
(green, orange, blue) that were zig zagging as one. As these lights were
moving they eventually came together and changed into a small shape that
was a circle at one end and star shaped at the other end. The craft appeared
to come towards us extremely fast as a huge spinning rainbow colored ball.
While closer to us, it changed back into the star shape very bright light.
It was moving so fast and changing into so many shapes that it is difficult
to accurately explain what was happening. Everything was caught on videotape.
Thanks to the National UFO Reporting Center www.ufosightings.com. NUFORC
Note: "We talked to the witness who has submitted this report, and
are satisfied that the events she describes here cannot be ascribed to
the optics of her camcorder."
- GEORGIA AND ALABAMA METEOR
- John Thompson reports that in the early morning hours
of Sunday, December 5, 1999, a huge bluish-white light was seen to cross
the skies in Alabama and Georgia. According to Anderson Williams of Fox
6 News in Birmingham, Alabama a video of the large light was taken by a
store surveillance camera positioned outside Caperton's in Weogufka, AL.
The tape showed complete darkness until a brilliant light passed across
the sky illuminating the area for three seconds as it passed. Seventy
seconds later, the sound of an explosion could be heard." Light like
the sun was rising was seen at 3:15 and 5:15 AM Eastern Time. Many reports
of the white light being seen were called in to WLAG and WTRP radio stations
in LaGrange, Georgia.
- Manager Mike Thompson of WTRP has given the best description
of the meteor. He said while on his way to work at 5:15 AM, he saw a huge
flash in the West. A split second later he saw a brilliant white ball,
with tail, go "straight down" in the West. The ball had no sparkler
or rolling effect but did seem to be on fire he said. The ball had an apparent
size larger than a full moon and the tail was somewhat smaller. The meteor
was of an intensity not seen since 2 February 1993 when tens of thousands
saw a huge reddish-orange-white meteorite travel northward along the Georgia-Alabama
border. One witness on the Atlanta TV news broadcast was convinced he saw
a UFO with a trial of smoke behind it. This individual thought he saw
a triangle shaped UFO with red, yellow and purple lights. The smoke trail,
of course, is a characteristic of a low burning meteor. Russ Henderson

- ALABAMA UFO SIGHTING
- BIRMINGHAM - J Vinsant writes, "At about 4:25 A.M.
on December 5, 1999, I woke up to see a bright white light had lit up my
entire back yard. I woke my wife and she also witnessed the light. The
light then slowly climbed up my windows at a very slow pace, as if it were
rising from the ground. We then watched the darkness of our house light
up for approximately ten to fifteen seconds. Just as the light climbed
up the window the darkness climbed up it also. Two minutes later, I heard
an explosion that rocked most of Birmingham and was passed off as a meteor.
I live south of Birmingham on a five hundred acre farm. However, my concern
is not the light or the sonic boom. My concern is the UFO that I witnessed
with my wife and her parents. After I heard the sound I then walked outside
and saw an oval/circular shape covered with lights that was hovering over
the mountain. The lights would rotate around the dish and would flash bright
like a light house when they shone in our direction. We watched for an
hour and a half. The UFO flew around and hovered without making any sound.
It would sometimes appear to be one bright light and sometimes it appeared
to be a complete circular saucer. Thanks to Mark Vinsant
- WISCONSIN AIR NATIONAL GUARD F-16 CRASHES CHASING UFO?
- BLANCHARDVILLE - Bill McNeff, the MUFON Minnesota State
Director reports that on September 13, 1999, a fighter aircraft thought
to be from the 128th Fighter Wing (ANG) had crashed chasing a UFO at 2:15
AM. This was in the paper one day and then it was not mentioned again,
Wisconsin State Journal 09/07/99 afternoon edition (Capital Times). (rough
copied for speed) (API). The ANG was making unannounced low level flyby's
and it (they) seemed to be chasing 6 little balls of light. This is not
the first time either. Four previous nights they have been awakening folks
in the middle of the night. However, the Control Tower at Truax Field denies
any flight activity. Well today the proof is not in they're hands, one
of their F-16's did in-fact go down south of Mt. Horeb for no apparent
reason. The Guard unit blames the crash on mechanical failure. Witnesses
describe a shoot out between the jets and the objects. One of the lights
turned a different color and emitted a ray type of glow and took out the
F-16 #WNG46-5607 piloted by Col. Ralph Emmit the Wing Commander. He was
unavailable for comment and still is in University of Wisconsin Hospital
being treated for nonlife threatening injuries. The Air National Guard
has not officially commented on this matter and the NTSB was not present
at the crash site. Editor's Note: We're attempting to investigate the
report further for clarification. Thanks to NUFORC and Bill McNeff MUFON
- CANADA DIAMOND LIGHT GROUP
- MONTREAL - I read your Filer's files about the police
in Massachusetts seeing a Diamond Light Group. My son and my husband,
a friend who lives several miles away and another friend west of Montreal
saw something similar in October at about 9:45 PM. Ron called to tell
us to go out to see the lights in the sky. He told me to look in the western
sky to see if we could see anything like that here. I saw it and so Philip
and JG came out to see them too. Then when we came back inside JG called
Ron and they chalked it up to some kind of spotlight for some sale. However
at about 1:00 AM Florence who had just gotten home called us about the
lights as she saw them too, through her balcony window. She said she had
driven through the business areas there were no search lights. We hadn't
thought more of it until I read this article. When I did I read it out
loud our jaws just dropped because of the similar sighting. Thanks to Frances:

- NEW ZEALAND UFO SIGHTING
- BETHWELLS BEACH -- My name is Jason Monds and we were
on a holiday to North Island on November 26, 1999, when we saw a UFO.
A group of my friends were heading to the beach for a late night dip at
about 11:30 PM, because it's extremely hot. Before we made it to the beach,
all five of us saw a cigar shaped object making incredibly fast advances
up and down the shore. It was incredibly fast and silent. It was glowing
glistening silver and would dematerialized and reappear. We could see the
reflection of the moonlight on the water and then onto the craft. It would
almost disappear and then re-materialize at a different point along the
shore. It had no visible lights, but at one point, there did seem to be
a line of dots or smudges along the side/edge of it.
- My friend Andrew, his dog Wilbur and myself made an advance
up the beach towards the craft. It stopped moving and hovered 500 meters
off shore, although the shimmery appearance make it hard to estimate distance.
So Andrew stupidly picked up a few shells and threw them towards the craft.
I shouted, " I didn't think it was a good idea." Wilber kept
barking and ran toward the craft every time it would move. We had been
watching the craft now for about ten minutes and the craft had left the
beach, hovering over the water about 600 meters off shore. I screamed
at Andrew to stop messing about but he said he wasn't going to leave without
the dog, which was standing in the water barking. Andrew entered the water
and felt a strange gravity or static energy run through him, but he grabbed
his dog and dragged him back to shore.
- By this time I was more frightened than I have ever been
in my entire life. I felt the craft was watching us so we ran back along
the beach as quickly as we could. The craft was sitting about 100 feet
off the water when it suddenly gained altitude. It dematerialized again,
leaving a strange shimmer and it was gone. Once we got back to the batch
one of the girls, Jess had already dialed 111 emergency and contacted the
police. She was in a hysterical state but the police turned up an hour
later due to the remoteness of our place. We went back onto the beach with
the police but the UFO had gone. Bethell's Beach is regarded by the local
natives as a highly spiritual area and scientist's have found massive concentrations
of iron in the sand, giving it a black or purple appearance.
- I spoke to Manu, a New Zealand native Maori who has lived
on the beach for 30 years. He claims UFOs are a regular occurrence and
that he'd actually made contact with the craft's occupants on a number
of occasions. He said, that in Maori legend the natives had actually been
guided by the sea beings to New Zealand on their journey from the Hawaiian
Islands long before white people had arrived. Thanks to Jason Monds Christchurch,
- METALLIC MATERIAL FOUND ON MUTILATED CATTLE
- HEREFORD - The Amarillo Globe Daily News story reports:
Law-enforcement officers in the Hereford, Texas found they had something
in common with officers in the Taos, N.M. On Dec. 9, 1978, officers found
out that a metallic material on the hides of mutilated Texas cows was nearly
identical to the material found on mutilated cows in New Mexico. The unexplained
mutilations occurred during the previous summer. Between 15 and 20 of
the mutilations happened near Hereford while 12 cattle were killed inexplicably
in northern New Mexico. In both places, the mutilations were discovered
after local people reported seeing UFOs. To make the incident even more
strange, ranchers in both places reported that the udders, rectums, tongues,
ears, testicles and sometimes tails were cut off the animals with sharp
and precise instruments. Entire reproductive tracts were missing from some
of the animals. But other cattle were left intact. Officers in both places
reported that there were no tracks or traces of human activity around or
leading to where the cattle were found dead. The substance found at both
places looked like slivers of gray paint and contained high amounts of
potassium and magnesium. The material was not fully identified, but was
believed to be some type of Teflon. Thanks to firstname.lastname@example.org (Jeff
Behnke) and compiled by Terry Moore Globe-News writer http://www.amarillonet.com/stories/120999/new_tales.shtml.
Editors Note: Similar slivers of silver material has been found on abductees
in New Jersey.
- CORRECTION ON "NEW INTELLIGENT SIGNALS FROM SPACE"
- ARECIBO, PUERTO RICO - Last week I ran a summary of a
Gannett News article by Todd Halvorson that was published in the Home News
Tribune on November 29, 1999. The newspaper did not run the entire article
and left the reader with the impression this was a viable contact. The
article indicated that the world's largest radio telescope, picked up what
appeared to be an intelligent signal coming from a small star named HD119850.
What's more a backup telescope at Jodrell Bank near Manchester, England
was hearing the same beacon a clear sign the signal was not from Earth.
Other tests were conducted from the Arecibo control room to determine if
the signal coming from 106 trillion miles away was real. The telescope
was moved away from the target star. The signal vanished and only returned
when it was aimed again at the target star. The SETI Institute and Jodrell
Bank wrote me to correct the story that the signal had faded and was never
confirmed. I discovered later that the Home News Tribune did not carry
the entire story. It ended the story prior to the announcement that this
signal was not confirmed based on SETI scientific protocol. Editor's Note:
Despite the denials several people wrote saying that the initial story
is correct and what is not public knowledge is that the SETI people have
very probably already intercepted dozens of ET 'messages' and radar signals.
The signals from space are being picked up regularly. The problem is
they do not stay long enough to be verified. I'm sorry for any inconvenience
error this may have caused.
- CHINA UFO STAYS FOR 90 MINUTES OVER SHANGHAI
- SHANGHAI - As reported last week, a UFO was seen over
China's commercial capital Shanghai on December 2, 1999. Various newspapers
and television carried the story. The UFO apparently stayed in view for
90 minutes allowing thousands to view the event. The object was cylindrical
in shape with a long bright tail and appeared similar to a comet. The
flying object may be a signal for further unrest and rioting. Usually
staid official newspapers insisted Thursday's UFO sighting was no vision.
Headlines shouted, "UFO Darts Across the City's Skyline," in
the official Shanghai Daily. The Wenhui Daily said in a front-page story
with color photographs "UFO Appears in the Sky Over Shanghai''. Nearly
100 people claimed to have seen a cylindrical object with a flaming orange
tail moving over the western part of the city for more than an hour on
Thursday afternoon, the newspapers said. They offered no theories on what
it might have been. The Chinese government is very sensitive to UFO reports
because the outlawed Falun Gong are believers in extraterrestrials and
UFOs. Thousands of Falun Gong leaders have been arrested across China.
Only the several million Christians imprisoned by the government exceed
the persecution of the Falun Gong. The photo can be viewed at: http://www.scmp.com/News/China/Article/largephoto_asp_ArticleID-19991204023454
- ALIENS ARE CHILDREN OF GOD TOO?
- Whitley Streiber, hosting the Dreamland Nationwide Radio
Program carried a story on November 28, 1999, a child asked the following
question of Pope John Paul II during one of the Pontiff's Q+A sessions
on one of his recent tours: "What about aliens?" The Pope replied:
"We have to remember that they are children of God too." Several
times, spokespersons within the Vatican have remarked publicly that the
hierarchy of the Catholic Church has evidence and official confirmations
from the world's governments that UFOs and their occupants are a reality.
Thanks to Dreamland.
- GEMINIDS SHOULD PROVIDE GOOD SHOW THIS YEAR
- Geminids will start on December 7, but reach full scale
observation on Monday December 13, 1999. Most well known meteor showers,
like the Perseids and Leonids, are old. They've been observed for hundreds
or even thousands of years. The earliest record of a modern-day meteor
shower is probably a notation in Chinese annals dated 36 AD, regarding
the Perseids, where it is said that "more than 100 meteors flew thither
in the morning." The Geminids are a different story. The first Geminid
meteors suddenly appeared in the mid-1800's. Those early showers were unimpressive,
boasting a mere 10-20 shooting stars per hour. Since then, however, the
Geminids have grown in intensity until today it is one of the most spectacular
annual showers with as many as 140 per hour (zenithal hourly rate).

- KECKSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA CRASH TAPE -- UFO crash/retrieval
Video Documentary Most readers of this column are familiar with the Roswell
event, but many are unaware that a similar incident occurred in Pennsylvania
in 1965, near a small rural community called Kecksburg. Veteran UFO researcher
Stan Gordon, has been gathering information on this case for many years,
and has produced a studio made 92 minute video called "Kecksburg The
Untold Story." This production recently won the 1998 EBE film award
for the Best Historical UFO Documentary. The video contains interviews
with many people who have information about the case. Witnesses came across
a large metallic acorn shaped object with strange markings, partially buried
in the ground, before the military arrived on the scene. A witness says
he saw the odd acorn shaped object on the back of an army flatbed tractor
trailer truck. Civilians claim they were confronted by armed military personnel.
For the first time witnesses speak out on camera discussing information
which suggests that there could have been a cover-up. A startling revelation
is revealed here from a witness, who says he saw a body in the same building
with the Kecksburg object at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base only days
after it was delivered there. Also contained in the documentary are some
of the actual audio excerpts from the WHJB radio special called "Object
in the woods." To order your copy of "Kecksburg The Untold Story"
send a check or money order to: Stan Gordon Productions, Dept. GF, P.O.
Box 936, Greensburg, PA 15601. The cost of the tape including shipping
and handling is $35.90. For PA residents the cost including tax, S&H
is $38.05. For more info check out Stan's website at www.westol.com/~paufo
- US GOVERNMENT UFO PROOF RELEASED: Audio tapes of a genuine
UFO Alert at Edwards Air Force base and studied by the Foreign Technology
Division at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, are now available for distribution
to the public. Lunar Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell was at Edwards the night
the UFO chase occurred. The 6th person to walk on the moon said, "The
night it happened I investigated it myself and this was a real event."
Sam Sherman's audio documentary tape called THE EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE
ENCOUNTER on the night of October 7, 1965, uses the actual voice recordings
provided by the Air Force. During this event 12 high tech luminous UFOs
invade secure air space and came down low over the runways at Edwards AFB.
Tower operator Sgt. Chuck Sorrels spotted them and notified the Air Defense
Command. Sgt. Sorrels is heard on the original tapes and in a new segment
where he verifies the event as it is heard on the archival recordings.
The UFOs are described and a decision is made to launch F-106 fighter
interceptors. You are there for an important part of UFO history. Hear
it for yourself, it's the best UFO tape ever made. Tape cost is $14.95
each plus $2.00 for shipping -- total $16.95 --(for overseas orders-out
